    I don't think that's anything to ban him over, if that's the only thing he was doing. If someone is being dumb at my forums, I simply change their user title as I see fit.

        Agreed, or just change their avatar, sig, etc, and just humiliate them

          I had a user yesterday that seemed to go through the members list and send out an email to everyone inviting them to go and join is own discussion forum. I banned him and told him why.

          He then reregistered and proceeded to do the same thing using the PM system. I sent him an email saying we would take "action" if he tried the same thing again

            I also banned my first member a few days ago... He posted a thread asking for a crack... we warned him and removed the post... he did it again... we warned him again, and removed the link... then he started to abuse the hell out of the moderator who removed his posts...

            so i banned him :|

                i had a lovely kid who'd join our forums under many different names, connect via a proxy to get around his previous bans, and post how much infoceptor was better then blizzforums, and then proceed to post obscene photos following each of his posts..

                and the threads, of course, had catchy titles like "askdjkhg" and "kjhdsfkjh."

                  LOL. What's interesting is that the original founder of Infocepter is my real life friend. He doesn't own it anymore though.

                    Only banned one within the first week of opening my board. Someone came in and their first post is asking for a warez copy of photoshop or something(don't remember which program)My board is one for graphic artists

                    Banned, replied to the post saying warez is not tolorated and you are banned. Left the post there for a week for any other morons who were thinking of asking for something illegal.

                    I am very tolerant, but 2 things on my forum recieve a zero tolerance, warez and posting porn.Well 3 I guess, racism as well. I don't mind you spamming your site, in fact I had a forum called spam your site, but no one used it lol.I encourage spamming if it's your site, doesn't fall into the warez or adult catagory and that you interact in my forum, don't just come there and fill the board with "come check out this cool new site "posts.

                    Other than that pretty much everything else goes.

                      My board has been around for about a year and I still havent banned anyone. Maybe I am lucky or too soft.

                      I have come close a few times with my only troll but have always let him off. He's not so bad and his title makes me laugh "I'm a troll, so piss off!".

                        I have to admit I am very strict when it comes to banning people, and it's because of people's blatant disregard for the forums rules. They agree to abide by them when they sign up so I do not feel it is nessacery (spelling?) to give them a second chance, somebody posts a url to a warez site..banned....somebody posts a spam topic....banned....somebody abused the PM system....banned and so on....

                        Somebody actually asked me to ban them yesterday, and they had over 3000 posts so I did without asking them why.

                        I must have banned over 100 people since the board was opened, banned about 8 or 9 just yesterday, I am to banning what elvis is to music.....The King.

                          I had the same problem. How do you take care of that?
